Last October, Toby Blome joined 33 other Americans on the CodePink Peace Delegation to Pakistan, to learn firsthand about the consequences of drone warfare in Pakistan and to support the growing resistance to U.S. drone strikes. She will report on first hand accounts about life under daily drone surveillance in Waziristan, Pakistan, the civilians lost to hellfire missiles, the survivors' stories, and the many ways everyday life throughout Pakistan has been seriously altered by the U.S. War on Terror.  Learn the full story of how Obama's secret wars, using remotely controlled unmanned planes to carry out illegal targeted killing, have caused significant collateral damage and are ultimately counterproductive by inciting anti-American rage and animosity.

Toby Blome, a physical therapist and former educator, is an organizer with the San Francisco chapter of CODEPINK, a women-led peace & social justice organization.  She has been very involved in the drone warfare resistance movement in the U.S. since 2009.
